For the most part the cruise was great - we love the ocean and the sun so what could be bad?  I was a little disappointed that Carnival has changed their room steward responsibilities to once a day rather than twice a day as before.  We chose to have him come in to our cabin in the mornings rather than the evenings.  This would be to tidy up and replace the towels, etc.  That meant no turn-down, etc. at night.  It was not a big thing, but by the time we got dressed for dinner, etc. in the evening, we had all wet towels hanging/laying around and nothing dry and clean for use in the morning.  For some reason, we also hardly ever saw our room steward.  In the past, it seemed like you would generally see them in the evenings as you were leaving for dinner, but since he was not around to take care of our room in the evening, we rarely ever saw him.  That personal touch by the room stewards and getting to know them was always nice.  Just a little perk I hate to see go away.

Seemed like we had more entertainment by the cruise employees than outside entertainment.
